NZ Review Praise for Salman Rushdie -A glittering novelist--one with startling imaginative and intellectual resources, a master of perpetual storytelling.---The New Yorker -[A] writer of courage, impressive strength . . . and sheer stylistic brilliance.---The Washington Post Book World -Swift in Gulliver's Travels, Voltaire in Candide, Sterne in Tristram Shandy . . . [Rushdie] is very much a latter-day member of their company.---The New York Times Book Review -One of the major literary voices of our time.---San Francisco Chronicle -Rushdie's synthesizing energy, the way he brings together ancient myth and old story, contemporary incident and archetypal emotion, transfigures reason into a waking dream.---Los Angeles Times -The most original imagination writing today.---Nadine Gordimer -Rushdie is our Scheherazade.---Ursula K. Le Guin, The Guardian -Everywhere he takes us there is both love and war, in strange and terrifying combinations, painted in swaying, swirling, world-eating prose that annihilates the borders between East and West, love and hate, our private lives and the history we make.---Time
